Dead Space 3 now available, DLC coming in March

The time has come, folks. The latest installment in the Dead Space series has arrived. Dead Space 3 is now available for purchase at retail stores in North America, as well as on EA’s Origin gaming service. Plus, Electronic Arts announced that DLC is coming for the game next month for $10 to prove that there’s even more to come after the initial release.

The new game sports a ton of new features, including an innovative drop-in/drop-out feature, as well as an all-new weapon crafting system. The game takes players on a “thrilling ride through the terrors that lie hidden in deep space and the unforgiving ice planet of Tau Volantis.” It sounds like fun, but we hope you’re ready for the challenge that lies ahead.

The DLC pack, called Awakened, will be available in March. There’s no specific date set yet, but you’ll be able to pick it up for $10 through various channels. In the DLC, players will experience the series’ “darkest chapters as the Necromorph battles become even more gruesome and terrifying than ever before.”

The action-horror sequel looks like it’s quite the thrill from what we’re seeing. Vice president and general manager of Visceral Games Steve Papoutsis says that “gamers will experience some of the most disturbing content they have ever seen in a Dead Space game — they are going to love it.” We’d say that’s a pretty good assumption, Steve.
